Unfortunately, that is what I have been stumbling upon during my research
but I was certain that there was a mode that got around that. I wonder what
I was working on in the past...or maybe it was some weird wishful thinking
dream that I got around it in the past.

I also found humor in the fact that your Wikipedia link discussed the issue
related to purchase orders.

I didn't want to have to deal with temp files / members but that might be my
only work around at this point (or a bunch of arrays to hold the data until
the "commit"). It's not a pretty solution either way.

Thanks everyone for your help on this and Happy New Year.

You've got a problem and one that is not unique to the i. Google 'dirty
read' and you'll find this type of exposure exists everywhere. One write-up
is here <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isolation_(database_systems)> and
removing the possibility of dirty reads essentially requires broader locking
(delays, timeouts,...).

This can't be the answer because most of the other programs using the
files will not have any form of commitment control. I am only adding
it to this program so the users can cancel their changes and rollback.

It may depend on how the interactive SQL is started, Does STRSQL
COMMIT(*CS)
make any difference?

I have an RPGLE program that I adding commitment control. When I
insert records to my file but have not yet committed them, I can go
to a second session and using interactive SQL, I can see them. When
I do a rollback in the program, they disappear (as I would expect).
